[UPDATE] Imaginary Relations (ongoing; ejournal)

Thursday, August 28, 2014 - 9:36am
Imaginary Relations: A Journal for the Ideological Critique of Aesthetic Objects (IR)

Announcing Imaginary Relations
Invitation to submit essays

Imaginary Relations is an experimental ejournal dedicated to ideological critique and analysis of aesthetic objects: poetry, fiction, drama, film and television. The journal seeks to examine the competing meanings that ideologies generate; how ideologies are produced and reproduced in single cultural productions; how ideologies function to produce material practices, such as reading, and how those reading practices can work to reproduce and transform ideologies. The journal, therefore, focuses on the complex valences of ideology as positive and productive forces in culture that do, and can, transform subjectivities and social relations.
